TECHNOLOGICALLY ADVANCED

Carefully designed and stringently tested, you can rest assured that every saddle in the John Whitaker Collection has been developed to enhance both you and your horse’s performance. All saddles within the range are built upon our revolutionary flexible Nylon tree, which absorbs shock and pressure; reducing strain on the horses spine and ensuring a more comfortable ride for both horse & rider. The Nylon Tree also means that your saddle can be adjusted in house for any fluctuation in your horses size without any loss of strength and stability.


High Tree Points Allows for greater shoulder movement.

Shock Absorbing Latex Under Panel Moulds perfectly to the horse,but retains its original shape when removed.

Personalisable Cantle Plaque Can be engraved with you or your horses name.

THE JOHN WHITAKER STANDARD

Injection Moulded Nylon Tree

Purpose-Led Design

Latex Under Panel

Light, flexible and shock absorbing. All saddles within the John Whitaker Collection feature this revolutionary tree at it’s core and come complete with the ultimate seal of quality - our Lifetime Guarantee. Made from a single mould injected with our durable Nylon formula this tree distributes pressure evenly, reducing pressure ‘hot spots.’ this not only places less strain on the horses spine, it also provides a much comfier and stable ride for you. The strength of our Nylon tree has allowed us to heighten the tree points whilst maintaining rigidity, allowing for greater shoulder movement to enhance your horses performance. Should your horse change in muscle tone, we offer a bespoke resizing service using our special Infra Red Thermo Moulding Technology which can adjust the width of your tree by up to 2cm.

Every type of equestrian discipline requires different skills and abilities - and your saddle should be no different. This is why all aspects of every saddle we create have been thoroughly thought out and rigorously tested to ensure they excel at their intended use. For example our Kid’s Pony saddle is designed with safety and stability in mind, with large calfskin knee rolls to help budding riders develop their skills while keeping them safe and our dressage saddle complies with British Dressage rules.

Our under panel incorporates a shock absorbing latex construction with a memory foam padding which moulds to the exact shape of your horse. When removed, this foam will revert back to it’s original form unlike traditional wool flocking. Our felt lined under panel features slits should you wish to use extra wool flocking. This mouldability means that your John Whitaker saddle can be used on different horses.

Our Nylon Tree is Guaranteed for Life

It’s these leathers that mould so perfectly to your horse and eliminate the need to break in your saddle, giving you optimum comfort and performance from day one. We are so confident in our leather quality, that all leather within the Saddle Collection is guaranteed for two years against defect.

Carefully Designed

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS How should I care for my John Whitaker Saddlle?

How often do I need to reflock my John Whitaker Saddle?

Before using your John Whitaker Saddle for the first time, we recommend that you use a good quality leather soap to help seal in the leather’s natural oil. After subsequent use, any build up of dirt or grime should be wiped down with a damp, clean cloth or sponge as soon as possible to prevent any damage. Be careful not to rub too hard, as any debris can scratch the soft leather. Contact with grooming and fly protection products should be avoided, as alcohol can discolour and damage the leather.

Can I adjust the size of my saddle?

How should I store my saddle? Saddles should be stored in a warm, dry environment to prevent mildew and mold and away from direct sunlight to avoid discoloration of the leather. We recommend that saddles be stored on a rack to maintain their shape.

Can I use my saddle for more than one horse? We have developed our saddles to be as simple to use and maintain as possible. Because of our memory foam flocking our saddles will mould to each individual horses shape whilst worn. This means that providing your horses are of a similar shape, you can use John Whitaker Saddles on several horses and your saddle will adjust accordingly. We always recommend that you have your saddle checked by a qualified saddle fitter.

50

Never! Thanks to the latex under panel and memory foam flocking, the padding will always return to its original shape. There are slits for extra wool flocking if desired. All saddles within the John Whitaker Collection are built upon our revolutionary Nylon tree, which can be adjusted an unlimited amount of times without losing its strength and stability. Adjustments of up to 2cm can be made in-house to an exact template of your horse.

What size do I need? Please visit our website at www.johnwhitaker.com for our full size guides or contact our sales staff on +44(0)1706 340 500 who will advise you.

How long is my saddle guaranteed for? Our Nylon tree is guaranteed for a lifetime and all leather used within our Saddle Collection is guaranteed against defects for 2 years. Other leatherwork from John Whitaker is guaranteed for 12 months. Guarantee’s are subject to proper use. Your statutory rights will not be affected. If you have any other questions, please visit our website at www.johnwhitaker.com, or contact one of our sales staff who will answer any questions you may have.
